Genomics research and discovery has led to a large increase of reported single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). From 2006 to 2017, the number of refSNPs in the NCBI dbSNP database has increased 13-fold. Many polymorphisms can be linked to disease susceptibility and responses to chemical therapies. Other polymorphisms are used as trait identifiers in livestock and plants. Being able to inexpensively and accurately determine the genotype in high-throughput fashion, with low sample input is a critical need in current, large-scale screening efforts. In this webinar, we present a novel, probe-based, PCR genotyping solution that possesses the universal cycling conditions, strong signal generation, and benchtop reaction stability needed for high-throughput screening. We will discuss the mechanism and unique technical advantages of using the rhAmp SNP Genotyping System, and we will illustrate the how easy it is to generate high quality genotyping data.

Presenter: Scott Rose, PhD

Director of Enzyme Development
Integrated DNA Technologies

Dr Scott Rose is Director of Enzyme Development at Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) where his team develops tools for functional genomics research. His team is responsible for creating, purifying and characterizing novel enzymes and developing complex mixtures of enzymes that can work in combination with each other. Dr Rose’s team also works in close collaboration with groups such as Applied Genomics, Functional Genomics, and Synthetic Biology.

After earning his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Dr Rose went on to obtain his PhD in Biochemistry from Rice University in 1988. Under the supervision of Dr Susan Berget, his thesis work focused on RNA processing, specifically mRNA splicing and polyadenylation. Dr Rose performed his postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Dr Raymond MacDonald at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Molecular Biology and Oncology, where he studied transcription based gene regulation using the pancreas as a model system. Dr Rose joined IDT in 1999 as a Senior Research Scientist.
